The Beautiful Lodge at Torry Pines overlooks Celebrate the Craft
Craft (of Seafood) with Catalina Offshore Products
Over the last decade Catalina Offshore Products has
joined California’s renowned food artisans in showcasing the state’s finest
culinary ingredients at the annual Celebrate the Craft. This year was no
different as we not only displayed our fresh fish, but many of the participating
chefs and restaurants served tastes using a variety of our sushi-grade seafood.Throughout the event, which was held Oct. 6 at the beautiful Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla,
visitors strolled and sampled premier wines and brews, small plates and
desserts. Each dish was created with natural ingredients and careful
craftsmanship. Amid a park-like setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the
scene was quintessential California.
As the festivities wound down, a lucky few came to
Catalina’s table inspired by recipes they’d sampled and walked away with whole
fish, crab claws and uni
to enjoy at home. Our fearless leader Dave Rudie masterminded the giveaway as
he answered questions about our displayed sea bass, groupers, crab, green and
purple sea urchins and more. He was overhead saying, “This is much more fun
than packing it all up to bring back to the plant!” That generosity also
extends at our fish market where we celebrate the craft of seafood year round.
Walk in on any given day and you just might find a guest chef or our fishmonger
Tommy Gomes cooking up the freshest catch, offering tastes and recipes!
A Twquila Cocktail is the perfect pairing for fresh seafood
